My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Trees, Water & People, Fort Collins, CO, USA
I have been supporting Trees, Water & People since 1999. As a contributor and a development professional, I continually have been impressed with how TWP has become more sophisticated in its advocacy of connecting sustainable land use, local communities and the need to develop local leaders and champions, starting with efficient wood stoves, tree nurseries, reforestation, and expanding to water catchment and conservation in dry areas. Trees, Water & People is close to local communities and partner organizations, developing long term relationships that open opportunities for substantive collaborations on the problems most important to the people and their communities. The organization has expanded to include a national program working with Native American communities. The organization also keeps its donors, the majority of whom are individuals, informed and engaged through newsletters, local events and study tours. I recently joined the Board of Directors, and can attest to the dedication, energy and integrity of the staff. As with all organizations, Trees, Water & People faces a continually changing array of challenges and opportunities for local communities development, and I am sure that TWP will continue its most excellent work.
